Color band colors for 1kΩ resistor

  1. Jan 27, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What are the color band colors and associated band values for a 1kΩ resistor

    3. The attempt at a solution
    resistor color codes are read like so:
    a=1, b=0, 10=c

    Now I get confused. What should the tol be?

    And just in case you have other questions about the color codes:


    Hey! Is this some kind of joke?

    A 0Ω resistor, marked with a single black band.​

    hmmmm.... Sure would make the homework helper's jobs a lot easier. :tongue2:

    "I have a circuit with 6 resistors in parallel and 3 resistors in series, all are zero ohms. How do I find the equivalent resistance?"

    tol = Tolerance. The problem did not ask for the tolerance, so you can ignore that for this problem.
